US-reared animals whose meat is set to be imported under post-Brexit trade deals are fed 10 antibiotics banned in the UK, potentially undermining treatments for infections, cancer and even coronavirus, a report has warned.

Government gives three conflicting versions of passport rule for post-Brexit travellers to Europe

On the day the UK leaves the EU, the government is giving prospective British travellers to Europe inaccurate information on passport validity.

Strict regulations come into effect at 11pm GMT. But the government's website has three different versions of calculating dates of validity – two of them at odds with Europe’s.

With UK airlines set to apply incorrect rules, there are fears that Europe-bound passengers could be wrongly turned away at the airport. Besides the upset to correctly documented travellers, each case of denying boarding will cost the airlines hundreds of pounds in compensation.
